Raw Images: 10 things every beginner must know before ditching JPEG
Beginner tips for raw images: 05 Raw images let you rescue detail
The extra information contained in raw images compared with JPEGs means that they are much better at dealing with high-contrast scenes.
Although it’s possible to boost the shadow detail in a JPEG, this often comes with a large increase in image noise, and you don’t always want that on your images.
With a raw file, you can reveal shadow detail and still achieve high-quality results.
You can use the highlight recovery tools in Photoshop CS or Photoshop Elements to get a little more highlight detail from a JPEG image, but you’ll recover much more if you shoot raw.
Remember, the files contain more information to start with, which can then be recovered using raw-conversion software.
